According to the Japanese Baseball Card Checklist & Price Guide, Vintage Edition 2.1, cards from the scarce gold border version of JCM 24 Hoshi Gangu are valued at two to five times the price of the regular white bordered cards. This is the sole example of a PSA graded JCM 24 Gold Border Andy Miyamoto card.

A native of Maui, Andy Miyamoto, an outfielder, played with the Yomiuri Giants for eight seasons (1955-1962), before moving to the Kokutetsu Swallows (1963-1964). He was a three time all star and was named MVP of the 1961 Japan Series. Interestingly, he finished his career in 1965 with the Hawaii Islanders of the Pacific Coast League.
